Love the mid '60s San Fran artist that did many of the GD's albums and tour posters (Griffin, Mouse, Kelley, Wilson, Moscoso). I have several of their posters hanging in my house. There is a really excellent book called The Art of Rock that you should take a look at.

Aside from that:
The Beatles' Let It Be and White Album
Stones' Sticky Fingers and Emotional Rescue
Marley's Catch A Fire
Clash's London Calling

Edit: Please Google the names above - really cool stuff.
Dylan's Highway 61
Talking Heads' Fear of Music
REM's Reckoning
Zeppelin 4

How about Spinal Tap: Smell the Glove

Seriously, I think that my favorite album cover of all time is probably Tommy, but there are so may. I love Blues for Allah, London Calling, Roxy's Avalon, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Even in the Quietest Moments, My Aim is True... I could go on...

American Reality ~ GD
Anthem of the Sun ~ GD (no in the dark references plz)

In Through the Out Door ~ LZ
LZ - #3

and for some reason Revlover really speaks to me. I dunno
why...
and George Harrison's 'Wonderwall'

cotton-woolyheaded-child-like-cartoon-memory-type art, I guess

and XTCs 'Oranges & Lemons': I think its the
Peter Max qualities about it.


and for the London Calling(s): I sure you know~
http://www.amiright.com/album-covers/elvis-presley-parodies/

In Through The Out Door was really good - the paper bag and water colors.

I was looking into this cover a bit...

It was nominated for a Grammy. See Best Album Design about 3/4 down the list:

Fun to see what was going on in '79.

Hipgnosis did LOTS of good covers:

I've seen the London Calling/Elvis Presley reference, but had no idea how deeply those referrals went. That's amazing.

I love Storm Thorguson, as well as Gerald Scarfe. Just saw Roger Waters do The Wall last week. Really a fantastic show. Took my 16 year old daughter with me. She loved it. Was all set for a Northerly Island Further show, but found out that work was taking me out of town, so that's not going to happen.

Not in NorCal right now, back home in Chi town. Will be doing the travel thing again very soon. Should be in Santa Clara late July.

Sounds good. Except for the Furthur thing... Taking a 16 year old to 'one of the most depressing concerts of all time' (as my brother says), is quite an interesting move. She must be well adjusted :) I saw that RW was back in America for another leg.
The Chitown show went up (AUD/FLAC) last week I think.
Theres an absolutely INCREADIBLE DVD of last years Chi town
show.
Dude has been around the world touring the same show
for a year plus now?
I caught RW TWO Octobers ago when he was around.
He skipped us this time :(. Dont have the $ anyway. $400 for 4 seats 20 rows from the back of the arena last time. Uhg. But I didnt mind. As you saw, the scope of the show is such that I dont think I would have wanted to be real close. Its a once in a lifetime show though huh? Glad you
and your daughter got the chance.
Always good seeing around man. peace

She's become a real music fan. Loves all the Floyd stuff, and this is, as you say a once-in-a-lifetime. She's decided that the "Old Man" actually has decent taste in music, and has been digging into my very deep collection for quite some time.

The FLAC recording is FOB, and captures everything. I got it the next day for her. Very good recording. The performance has only gotten tighter, and the production has only gotten more mature since the last time it toured. But, damn, it is pricey.

Bummed about the Further show.

Other than that, all's well. And how's it with you?

Sounds like she's got good footsteps to follow in.

I saw that your RW show was taped by 'ravinganddrooling'
(something like that), that guy has THE best recordings.
You got very lucky.

Not much here, Im just getting pumped for the All Good fest next month
woohoo!
Im gonna try your Email later to see if you want a copy
of that DVD 9-10-2010 Chicago show...

Oh, Believe me, I've got the DVD already! Thanks so much for the kind offer, though.

You know me, if there's something that I want that's of value, and downloadable, I've got it.

Remember when Arbuthnot came out with those Jerry collections? Still have all those.

Have that Iomega IX4, 5.5Tb of usable space in Raid6. Lotsa space to play with.

Collecting is a disease. I have way more music than I'll ever watch or be able to listen to. What fun!

Have you ever been to FloydPodcast.com? You should check that out. He's got some amazing shows, and the quality is fantastic.

Shoulda figured. I like to trade still, even though it is
usually out there in some form, or site. IX4? I apparently
didnt know who I was dealing with. christ man...

Im kinda the same about getting more media than needed. But I looked at it just as having a library, not unlike here.
Rationalize much?

floyd cast~ have every one DLed, and a seperate ipod for
just them. Excellent shows. I sent Doc 50 bucks that last
money drive. Least I can do. Im sure you know hes tight
with 'ravinganddrooling' too. Id love to listen to those
guys having a conversation.

All right then...

Trading is nice 'cause it involves people. Here's a good link.

https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=2ED6818A2ED9EECD&;id=2ED6818A2ED9EECD%21125

This is just what I have on my skydrive... A small taste,if you will

I was hoping to meet the Doc at Wrigley, but he didn't make it to Chicago. I've never had the pleasure IRL. He's a great guy, very talented. I hope that when they turn on the Sirius/XM Dead channel, that they give him a job, cause he's kind of hurting for cash. He does the podcast for love, not money.

The IX4 is because I used to work for EMC. IT is my thing. Storage and Virtualization is my game.

Here's a link to my LinkedIN profile

DUDE. My mind is blown...
I had no idea. That is so cool, and Im soooo out of touch.
I had to reset my W Live ID, but Im coming to check it out
when I have time later. Fucking sweet selections bro.
I could learn a lot.

Shame about Doc. I dont quite understand what you mean,
"when they turn on the Sirius/XM Dead channel". when???
not following you. Nevertheless, Doc deserves more, I
agree.

And I dont do that Facebook, Twitter, linkdin stuff. I have
a hard enough time keeping up as it is if you cant tell :)
But you have given me some inspiration. If any of those,
I would try Linkdin. I cant stand all the facebook crap
honestly. So Im gonna store your info and see later.

You still have your yaaaahheeeuww acount for now?

You can take your info down from your post if needed.
and THANK YOU

oh, and does the skydrive have trackers? Do you know who
is DLing your stuff?

I love twitter, but don't do Facebook. The yeehaw acct still works.

As to the Floyd channel, I think sometime in July, the channel goes live, and it'll be modeled on the dead or Springsteen channel. There was a preview held over memorial day, but the playlists were very limited. Too much Wall, and goddamned Division Bell. I love the hard to find, and rarities.

I also hope that the bit rates are greater than the dead channel.
